“The city consists of relationships between the measurements of its space and the events of its past”
- Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities (1972, p. 9).
This is part of a series of definitions of cities featured on City Breaths. The aim is to collect definitions from different perspectives. The definitions will tell us something about what the role of urban space is in sustaining human life, the way we experience and perceive urban space and the sensations it creates in us. You are welcome to add more definitions. The other definitions can be read here.
